Christopher St J H Daniel MBE
Christopher Daniel is arguably the most prolific designer of sundials in the UK today. His works are to be found all over the country and range from private commissions to major public works and to restorations of old and damaged dials. Other dial related work extends to such things as designs for 'ex libra' library inserts, logos and even to poetry. Christopher was appointed MBE in the Birthday Honours of 2013 for his services to the History of Marine Navigation, Timekeeping and Sundials.
The archive of Christopher Daniel’s work is held at the National Watch and Clock Museum, 514 Poplar St, Columbia, PA 17512, United States. Science, history, art, and the work of a life time are all represented in the Daniel collection which is currently being catalogued. Once that is complete the archive will be available to researchers.
The concept of creating this website arose from the exhibition of Christopher Daniel’s sundial design work, by Jill Holder and Bob Lamoon, that was set up in the Creek Creative Gallery in Faversham in April 2013. The website is maintained by Patrick Powers, who arranged it to give the public a wider knowledge of Christopher Daniel’s sundial design work.
